. . . Paint Chip Placecards . . .

I love hosting a party or dinner and having the opportunity to make unique placecards.  I figured for a colorful table why not give paint chips a try.  They are free and fun to use in projects and this one turned out great.

You will need:
Paint Chips
Clips with the black base
Scissors
Sharpie Marker
 
Take a long thin paint chip and fold it in half.  Cut it while folded--I cut mine to be 2.5 inches.

Use your Sharpie Marker and print the guest's name on the
paint chip-towards the top so the clip won't cover it up.
Use a small piece of the chip you cut off and cover the base of your black clip. 
I used a dab of glue to hold it in place but even a piece of double sided tape will work.

Slide your folded paint chip down in the clip using the black part as your base.

Place the cards where your guest's will sit and you have a fun tablesetting.

Unique and Fun!
